    Some of you may remember the post I did a while back about my extreme frustration getting the points to match on my lone star. Well, I quilted it before I left for my brother's wedding, bound it this morning and wallah...frustration seems like a distant memory now...all I feel is a sense of satisfaction and some pride for sticking to the project and finishing it...and it is all in orange...my happy color! It is in the wash now...can't wait to dry it and hang it! Yippee!!

    Thanks all for looking!

    Stunning! How many different shades of orange did you use? I think I would like to make one of those in green (my favorite color!!)

    I just love this wall hanging. The colors are gorgeous and you did a wonderful job in creating the star. I love it, love it, love it - a definite happy quilt. Thank you for sharing.

    I would have never thought to do one all in one color. It turned out beautiful!

    Beautiful. I just finished one in red, white and blue. The one color theme is great. I may have to do one in my favorite purple.

    I think one in green would be awesome! I used four shades for the star and then one for the background. So five oranges,lol.
